Free books from AmazonThe Perfect Family by Jacquie Underdown

Three everyday couples, from one ordinary family ... and an astonishing murder plot.

Outwardly, The Radcliffes are a typical suburban family. But anyone close enough to them will know that it’s all for show.
Matt and Nikki’s life is perfect. They’re happily married, work great jobs, and are raising two loveable teenage sons.
Anthony and Belinda have it all—the looks, the big house by the water, and a successful business.
Vaughn and Paige couldn’t be more in love, and they can’t wait to start a family of their own.

But underneath, each couple is in crisis and there is one cause. Out of options and their backs against the wall, they discover that murder isn’t a tool reserved only for criminals.
Dead Fish Jumping on the Road by W.L. Liberman

Joe Simpson is a cynical reporter haunted by childhood memories.

It's the 1960s, and Joe has fled the big city only to end up in the small resort town of Applewood. Writing for the Gazette, Joe's life is uneventful until strange events begin to unfold.

A young girl drowns off a motorboat, and a local farmer plants a hoe in his wife's back. The assistant manageress of the bank vanishes without a trace.

Why is the whole town going crazy?

Things heat up even more when the town's first hippie opens up a record shop and invites his menacing friends to take up residence. Meanwhile, big money is moving in to develop the town's shoreline into a glitzy resort.

Applewood is about to erupt, and it is Joe's job to get to the bottom of it.

The Walls of Lucca by Steve Physioc

When Franco, a weary Italian soldier who’s seen some of the worst of World War I, stumbles onto the Martellino vineyard, he’s looking for work — not love. But he finds that and much more with Isabella, the feisty young woman who works there.

Franco pours himself into the vineyard, trying to create a wine that will save it from financial ruin and rescue him from his dark memories of war. But it’s not easy when Mussolini's evil shadow continues to loom over all of Italy. It’s even harder when Susanna, the vineyard’s matriarch, invites that shadow to the vineyard with her involvement in Fascist politics — and one very sinister political operative.

Influenced by the teachings of A Course In Miracles, The Walls of Lucca is historical fiction that shows readers the power of love and forgiveness in the face of evil. Compelling, colorful characters populate an authentic, inspiring story of friendship, faith, love and loss in a tumultuous time in European history.

Moo! by Kim Crux

Sometimes all the trouble in one’s life can be boiled down to one thing: wool socks. With red stripes.

As you might’ve already deduced, Moo! is not about beef.

It isn’t about bandits who psyche themselves up with self-help mumbo jumbo, about committing manslaughter against one’s own lemon of a horse, or about an intriguing cowpuncher at The Bar Circle Gets the Square Ranch, though these all figure into the story.

It’s about a woman who can’t let go, a woman with illusions of control. And, of course, the socks.
Seven Days of Friday by Alex A. King

Seven Days of Friday opens with Days of the Week underwear and closes with a forty-year-old secret that refuses to stay submerged.

Thirty-four-year-old Vivi Tyler is living her nightmare: gay husband, self-harming teenager, melodramatic mother. They're picking apart her sanity, one stitch at a time. She's crawling along rock bottom when the arrival of a mysterious package opens a new door to a new country.

A desperate Vivi dives headfirst into the quicksand that is Greece--her parents' birthplace. But it's a paradise far from perfect, and instead of the new beginning she covets, Vivi discovers trouble is determined to keep her in its pocket. Soon she's fighting for her daughter's life in a Greek hospital, clashing with her Greek relatives, and cobbling together an inadequate cage around her heart, lest she fall for an unavailable man.

It Happened in the Mining Town by Adela Pilowsky

A poor copper mining town. Three generations of one family. A life full of secrets.
María Inés’s life has always been marked by upheavals.

Her mother died during childbirth. Her father found it extremely difficult to raise her on his own, and when she was just a teenager, she already managed to get into trouble with a dubious young man named Eduardo because of whom she was sent away to a special agricultural farm for girls.

She returns five years later only to find herself falling in love with Rodolfo, a well-known and admired soccer player, with whom she has two children—Raquel and Rosa.

Eduardo, however, who in the meantime was saved from a life of crime and has joined the military, is still madly in love with María Inés, and lets his jealousy of Rodolfo haunt him.

In order to win her heart back, he realizes he first must get rid of Rodolfo.

When Eduardo’s plan goes awry, the young family’s life is thrown into turmoil.

Will the truth be revealed or will so many secrets remain buried forever?
This is How the Story Begins by Bar Bolandi

Writing is his lifeblood. Will his dream slide into the abyss?
Charlie is an intense man, rebellious, and unlucky. He returns to his country of birth after living in France for about six months, where he went following a love which turned out to be a huge disappointment.

Broken and frustrated with his state of affairs, he tries his hand at the dream he had always been toying with—becoming a real writer. The problem is he cannot write.

When he casts doubt on the existence of love, he enters a world of mystery where he meets a woman who tries to show him the error of his ways through a road paved with obstacles and adventures, so he can break through his writer’s block.

Charlie is looking for the promised land he needs in order to breach the barrier, but his greatest enemy, self-destruction, gives him no rest and threatens to hurt the only thing that truly matters in his life—writing.
The Bumbling Buyout by Omri Gilat

Welcome to the start-up that is about to change the world… If only its founders knew what the hell they were supposed to do…
When Shuki, a young software tester, realizes his career has reached a dead end, he decides to quit his job and venture out on a business of his own.

Shuki is joined by a new CEO with a problematic background and together (along with some other colorful high-tech outcasts) they set off on a challenging journey, hoping to hit it big and become millionaires.

The idea behind this new start-up is mind-blowing, but its execution turns out to be technically unfeasible. Or so it may seem...

Nothing, however, keeps them from coming out with bombastic announcements, which will need to stand up to the scrutiny of the entire world. Will they achieve glory and amass huge fortunes, or will the bubble burst in their faces?
